Teaching Guides & Materials

The limited access to resources and lesson plans that incorporate the Caribbean in K-12 and higher education prompted dLOC to create this digital collection.  The dLOC Teaching Guides & Materials Collection holds materials that facilitate the use of dLOC materials though education modules and other lesson plans.  The list below highlights the education modules already available in dLOC.  If you are willing to contribute to addition lesson plans that have worked in your classroom, please see the guide to submitting resources and the grant permissions form for more information.

Teacher Training

dLOC prepared a Teacher Training Workshop targeted to K-12 public school teachers in 2009 for the Miami metropolitan area. The goal of the workshop was to facilitate the use of dLOC materials in curriculum development, and to educate students in the scholarly use of electronic resources.
